About Me 💭

Thanks for checking my site out! And thanks for reading this :)

I am a...

Peruvian-Chilean-Syrian, 20-something, matcha enthusiast, music-loving, chick flicks + psychological thriller movie binger... 🍵 🎞️ 💿
...oddly in love with large bodies of water, constantly searching for my next creative hobby to hyper-focus on. 🌊 🌠

I've always loved listening to people talk and continuously learning about life and humans through conversation. It comes natural for me to want to help people, and I've learned how important it is to make people feel heard.

That's why I chose UX Research, I love helping people and take pride in being a great listener who asks the right questions. I also love implementing my own creative twist in conversations, coupling insights togethers, and ultimately influencing designs and decisions.
